Environmental Projects

Saheliya Community Garden in Glasgow was designed and developed by 50 wonderful women at Saheliya between May and July 2016.

At present the community garden has:

  • 250m2 of raised beds for growing fruit and vegetables
  • An outdoor kitchen for cooking produce from the garden
  • A shipping container being slowly turned into a community space


Coming soon:

  • Herb garden
  • Orchard
  • Outdoor classroom
  • Wild-life pond
  • Garden conservatory

Benefits of community gardening:

  • Practice your English in a relaxed environment
  • Make new friends and have fun
  • Learn new skills
  • Fresh fruit and vegetables to harvest and take home
  • Fresh air and exercise is good for mind, body and spirit
  • 15 minutes of gardening is more effective than a daily anti-depressant

How to get involved:

We have regular community gardening sessions at 10am -12pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
We also have opportunities for learning how to Grow Your Own Food.
